Chasing Content – May 2007

It’s time for a second edition of Chasing Content. Let’s dip back into the archive and explore what was happening here on the blog six years ago.

or just these gems

What Happened to Respect?

It seems not much has changed in the past six years. This is what I wrote, “It’s frustrating being a teacher in this day and age. I was disrespected in a handful of ways today. And I couldn’t really do anything about it. I try to do my job to the best of my ability and I treat the students with respect. But it doesn’t get returned.”

Wow, I could have wrote that today just as easily. It’s sad.

River of Distraction

I can barely remember not having the Internet at home. Back in those days, I still blogged but I wrote all of my material offline, saved it to a thumb drive and uploaded whenever I could get the chance.

I have to admit that the Internet still distracts me but it also helps me. I’ve been working on the radio show and podcast and would have had a hard time doing so offline. I use it for research all the time. It’s a great tool . . . but it still takes me away from writing some times. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Positive Hip-Hop Promotion

This is what I am all about. It could be my mission statement. I love the cutture of hip-hop and try to promote it and show everyone how positive it can actually be.

It’s cool to see how I used the example from this post in my teaching this year too.

Who Am I?

Still trying to figure this one out. It’ s been a good journey so far though.

You Can’t Do Anything You Want

We always tell our youth that they can do anything, that they can become anything they want to. Is this the right message to give them?
